Middle School CalArts Program
Through our partnership with the California Institute of the Arts, middle school students have the opportunity to take a second visual or performing arts course, in addition to the one required in the regular curriculum. Each semester the students choose from a variety of classes in music, dance, theatre and the visual arts, which meet once a week to supplement and enhance their arts education. CalArts graduates and graduate students come to Oakwood to share their expertise and enrich our core courses. Since 1982, our CalArts program has offered classes such as: Musical Theatre, Improvisation, Computer Animation, Comics and Caricature, Historical Self-Portraits, African Dance, Jazz Singing, Super 8 Film making, among many others.
